great board

Gary R., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Pros: Ive now had this board runing in my system for 7 years. Never a fail as of yet. Just changed the Cmos battery, not because i needed to, but i figured i should anyway after 7 years. Crazy right
  • Cons: none i can think of.

5 years now

James A., Newegg
12 April 2013
  • Pros: The board has worked well for over 5 years now with no housekeeping. I have used everything from an 8600 video card to 8800gtxxx to 5770 ati and it doesn't care, I am on my third power supply, the voltage out in the country is pretty spikey even though I do use a couple of surge limiters ahead of...
  • Cons: none that come to mind.

Great board, great value

Jennifer M., Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: I would buy it again.
  • Pros: Great board, no problems installing, I had no problem lining up with holes and have been running it for nearly a year with not one glitch.
  • Cons: Someone else mentioned their graphics card sits close to the chipset heatsink - I agree, but it really hasn't caused a problem for me.

Works Well

Gary J., Newegg
23 December 2008
  • Summary: Does the trick. Maybe spend a little more to avoid little annoyances like I have? If you're tight on money like I was this is a really good motherboard.
  • Pros: Great Mobo that has plenty of expansion slots for the price. Looks good and functions perfectly. Cheap for what it's got.
  • Cons: The mobo holes didn't match up perfectly with my case so I dunno whether to blame the mobo or my apevia case. I have about 5 screws out of the 8 recommended or whatnot. Works fine but would make me happier if it just worked? Also....sometimes when i touch something the wrong way the computer shut...

Good BUT!

Anonymous, Newegg
17 December 2008
  • Summary: Other wise the only other grip I have is the heat that comes from the Bridge thay really need a better way to handle this but I added a fan that works really well for this. If you like to play DO NOT MESS WITH THE LOGO program uninstall it and leave it alone or dont let it install withthe drives and...
  • Pros: Really Good MOBO!!! I really like the layout. You do need to watch placement so that you dont cover up the heat sinks. Note this MOBO thay do get really HOT! I added an extra fan at the bottom of my tower to help with heat.. Other wise the set up and drivers and such when like clock work. As stat...
  • Cons: Now there is a program that comes with this MOBO that is a BIOS killer. I am not joking about this at all, The program is said to allow you to place a LOGO in the BIOS for start up. There is no info or instrustion with it and it you use it you are asking for it.. It will erase your Bios and write...

Perfection Overall

Anonymous, Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: Great board even if old and Gigabyte's Bio is superb and easily understandable also completely relevant to a gamer! SLI ready(Which is what I'm doing with 9600's after having an XFX 8400gs 512mb G card in it for a year) It's just a reliable and cheap motherboard, I highly recommend!!!!!!
  • Pros: Works perfectly with a wide range of expansion slots. Two PCI Express slots (SLI) which are compatible with the newer PCI Express 2.0 video cards(They just run a little slower due to mobo restrictions of not being fast enough) Huge amount of RAM slots (16Gb) capable and you can also get faster dd...
  • Cons: Doesn't serve me breakfast...

No problems

Daniel W., Newegg
4 December 2008
  • Pros: Good, stable performance; 4 months with no issues which is a miracle for me. The board has plenty of onboard features, supports SLI, and can take newer AMD CPU's, so it's somewhat future-proofed.
  • Cons: Using a longer video card may get in the way of the chipset heatsink. My card (8800GT) goes right over it, but again I've had no problems myself.

Great for budget

Adam R., Newegg
2 December 2008
  • Summary: Been going strong for a year so far, what does that tell ya :) Great Product MUST BUY if on budget.
  • Pros: -Fast -Good features in BIOS i.e. overclocking -OC'd 5000+ black edition to 3.2 successfully with no crashes. Forunately since it's so good, I can bring it back down to 2.8 ghz and still run smooth. (XP Pro) -CHEAP
  • Cons: -Flimsy and fragile. Noobs, please be safe. -could have more connectors for power. -strange placement of connectors.
